Yivríndil was created as the language of the Yivríndi, one of the people
groups inhabiting the fictional world of Aratasa. Thus its practical use
is for my writing, but privately I have made it as an artlang, embodying
the phonological and grammatical principles I find aesthetic. Within
these bounds I have also tried to make it as naturalistic as possible,
introducing natlangish diachronic irregularities and other features to
make the language seem realistic.
